Count? Who gives a shit about counting? How fucking retarded do you have to be to prioritize post count?

Now, it is a useful indicator of a poster's relevance...but only when you combine it with the other things you know about them, just like a person's age or IQ.

Use your goddamn brains. If your posting because you want to break 500 this week, you should probably step outside and smell the fucking fresh air for a change. Post here because you've got a question or something to say, or are procrastinating on term papers. Or if you're Socrates, post because the voices tell you to.

But I guarantee you that the next froot who throws a victory party when he's spammed up to a certain level of posts is going to get...absolutely no more respect than he had the day before.

Ah,
I haven't posted nonsense in here.

sdjfhsdfjhsdf.

There, one post more rolleyes.gif


Seriously, I'm with Booker T on this one.
Some topic's should be restriceted, and in some topics posts shouldn't count.

Also, suggestion: Waiting period for newbies before being able to post.
That way someone will have i.e. 3 days to think his question over insteed of quickly signing up and asking stupid q's

i dunno about that. i mean the purpose for newbies to sign up IS to ask questions, even if we deem them stupid because we know the answer.

if stupid posts are what people are worried about, then fine. if people want to put some kind of restriction on newbies, im wholeheartedly against it.

i asked questions when i joined (although it was in the modding forum, and not the modchip general/problem forum) but people answered all questions i had, why cant we do the same for the new crop of newbies?

the only question is who would decide which post do and dont count. Do you think someone has that much free time to go through every ost.
